I have schedule a Veeam backup and keep the file for 7 days.

I have run a full backup once only and schedule the task to run differential copy every day.

After 7 days, will Veeam will merge all the differential copy into the previous full backup automatically. Do I need to manually run full backup again at the end of every 7 days ?

Thx

The Veeam backups of a user's Windows 10 Professional OS to a network attached storage device keep failing with VSS errors (see the screenshot). This Surface is running Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows 2.0.0.700 - Free Edition.

This is occurring on a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 that is joined to a Server 2016 AD domain.

We have several other Microsoft Surface Pro 3 and Lenovo laptops that all backup successfully to this same NAS.

The user is logged onto this surface with administrator rights and the Surface has 160 GB of free space on a 240 GB Solid State drive.

I have already followed the standard troubleshooting techniques including uninstalling and reinstalling Veeam, clearing temporary and temporary internet files, making sure all Windows & Office updates are installed, and connecting the Surface to the network with an RJ 45 network cable instead of using Wi-Fi.

However, these Veeam backups continue to fail at the very beginning before the backup status reaches 1%.

What can be done to fix these issues so the Veeam backups will succeed? The Veeam backups on this Surface have never succeeded.

I am using Veeam to backup copy virtual machine from the datastore on a local vCenter system to a remote vCenter datastore.   Actually I backup the local VM and then run the backup copy from the local to the remote.  Now I want to restore the VM from the remote datastore to the remote vCenter system.    The restore works just as advertised but it is only restoring at 7MB/s and I was told by Veeam support that the restore is running in network mode and not hotadd mode.    The process works but very slowly.  Veeam support says that there is a permissions issue with the datastore that is causing the restore to fail out of hotadd mode and I am not sure where to look for assistance in resolving this.   Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Backup failing:

Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 update 3

One of my backups are failing with the following error message:

 Processing SERVER1 Error: Unfreeze error: [Backup job failed. Cannot create a shadow copy of the volumes containing writer's data. A VSS critical writer has failed. Writer name: [SqlServerWriter]. Class ID: [{a65faa63-5ea8-4ebc-9dbd-a0c4db26912a}]. Instance ID: [{632d02ad-fd33-495c-8ffa-bb2d8be70d8e}]. Writer's state: [VSS_WS_FAILED_AT_PREPARE_SNAPSHOT]. Error code: [0x800423f4].]

Has anyone seen this error and can possible help me with correcting it?

Greetings

I am backing up a couple of windows 10 desktops before joining a new domain. I am using the Veeam windows stand alone agent. I want to back up to a server share set to full access for everyone. I can browse to it and map then open it with no issue. I get an error when choosing the shared folder option. It states it is using the SMB1, which is unsecure an protocol, so can't proceed. I made sure SMB1 is not on on the server nor the desktop.

Any ideas appreciated.

Hi

I have a 24TB SAN which I'm setting up for veeam replication. I have quite a few servers I want to setup for replication. Is it worth have multiple volumes or 1 big volume to hold the replicated VMDK files.

I have the last two VM's to migrate to a new Host.

1. Is there anything I need to consider with moving the vCenter vm to a new host (Usin Veeam quick migration)

2. I plan to use Veeam copy to copy the Veeam server to the new host - then power-off the original, then power on the copy on the new host - is this plan OK?

Hello everyone,

We are overhauling our infrastructure and wanted to know some opinions on both of these SAN units. We are looking into the Netapp FAS2650 & Tegile T4100 IFA to house our VMs. Biggest concerns are how well both integrate and function with Veeam 9.5 and ESXi 6.5. Does anyone have major issues or gripes with either one of these? We are planning on using iSCSI for the protocol, but heard NFS is gaining popularity. Which is a better practice, still continue to use iSCSI or use NFS? Any benefits or cons of using one over the other? Here is a quick rundown of our proposed infrastructure:

2- ESXi 6.5 hosts (Cisco UCS C220 M5s)
~200 users
~25 Virtual Machines
Planning on using 2x Nexus 3524x for the server backbone (all 10Gig including SAN & hosts)

Would appreciate some opinions and recommendations.

TIA!

I am trying to understand What Synthetic Full Backup backs up as data.
I thought it will create a full backup from storage and inject the incremental backup it has created the same day to the Full backup.

However looking at the Veeamone reporter, I see under Transferred (GB) column 48.13 GB,  it is less than the incremental one day before.

Any Veeam Expert to explain the report as shown in the screenshot below:

Thank you

I  need to migrate a VM to a new ESXi host. The VM hosts  software which has a license key tied to the MAC address . The new license key will take  24 hours  re-generate - the software cannot be offline that long..

The advice from the Vendor is to replicate the VM to the new host, power-down the existing VM, power-on new VM to get the new 'RegCode' to submit for license generation. Then reverse.

Once the new license code has been generated - power-up the new replicate, enter the new license code..

Is there a way to power-up the replicated VM to get the  'RegCode' without having to power-down the live VM to avoid IP conflicts? The new host is connected to the same networks  and several VM's are make use of the NICS.

Using Veeam.

hi guys

I need to restore a file from a tape backup on Veeam. I can't for the life of me do it. I use Symantec so I am used to just being able to browse to the file location and restore.

How do you restore just one file from a tape backup?

Thanks for helping

I updated my ESXi from 5.1 to 6.5

I backed up all my VM's via Veeam Backup and Reoveray.

I detroyed my existing RAID set and re-created a new Virtual Disk.

I instaledl I upgraded my ESXi from 5.5 to 6.6licenses.

I instaled the OSMA

I'm just stuck on restoring my VM's.

I'm currently installing and deploying the new VCenter.

If anyone is awake, I could use some assistance in restoring the VM's from my Veeam Backup and Replication.

Thanks in advance for all the help.

Pls clarify the power state of each VM  during and once migration completes, and how 'final' disk and memory state is managed to allow zero/minimum downtime transition to the target.


Eg :

I see something linke this :

  1. The source VM is  in power ON ->
  2. Veeam migration process starts ->
  3. migration completes ->
  4. ? source is powered off  or 'suspended' ->
  5. ? 'finale changes are replicated' disk & memory state are replicated (?) to target
  6. ? target is 'activated' or powered-on

I'm thinking of using Veeam Quick Migration to migrate VM's from one ESXi host to another (not licensed for vmotion).

The source Host has 4 NICs,  and some of the source VM's use  different NICs. The target host has 6 NICs.

While I have configured networking on the target host identically 'as possible' to the source (Ie same NIC device name,  Standard Switch name &  physical NIC numbers) how does Veeam know which NICs to assign to each VM/OS ?

Or is this something that  will need to be done manually?

I was forced to change my VMware ESXi 5.1 password yesterday  and now I'm getting the following error messages on my Veeam Backup and Replication 9.5:

 " Failed to create processing task for VM WLLARCHIVE Error: Cannot complete login due to an incorrect user name or password. "

How do I update the Veeam Backup and Replication to show the new password to communicate back with my VMware ESXi 5.1?

I use Symantec Netbackup for backup, this application includes a report that is able to tell me some information about the old backups such as the size of each backup job and when they will expire from the storage (when they will be automatically deleted).

Since I also use Veeam to backup VMs, I am looking VeeamoneReporter to find similar report that can report the same information but, it does not seem like I can find it.


Any Help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks

is it common when you use backup exec or veeam etc to also document your backup procedures for your virtual servers, or would any engineer with knowledge of common backup appliances be able to figure out the process relatively comfortably if no such documentation existed? what kind of things do you document to assist the knowledge of new engineers that they would not be able to glean from within the backup management software itself. and what kind of training is common when it comes to educating new engineers on the backup/restore process for virtual servers? e.g. from a management standpoint, what would you need to see in relation to training to have assurances new engineers understand the process from existing senior engineers.

I need some Exchange 2010 data for the TAX man which exist on an old Veeam backup. I have a replica of this server which, when fired up, but not networked, fails to let me start Exchange.

So I restored a database file (EDB) and using Veeam 9.5 explorer for Exchange and tried to mount it in Veeam explorer. I get this error "The specified file is not a valid Exchange database file"

Anyone know how I can extract this mailbox? (I no longer have the Exc 2010 server). Further info: The edb is sitting on a Synology Nas, not a windows server, could this be the problem?

We have a Windows Server 2012 R2 File Server with deduplication enabled.  Last week, our Veeam replication job for this server began taking very long (hourly job taking 2-3 hours to complete).  Our other file server with deduplication enabled is not experiencing this issue.

While investigating, the only difference that I found was that the server with the issue has a number of Dedup files that are sitting near the top of the Disk I/O listing (see attachment).  The files are being written to, but no dedup jobs are currently running.  These files are not listed in the Process Manager of the file server not experiencing the slow replication.

Is there a way to clear these files from the server, or am I looking at the wrong thing?

Hi, an Exchange server, has fairly low space and the problem was due to the transaction logs becoming very large in file size. We have attempted to reduce the size by having Veeam mange the logs with the application-aware image processing option enabled in the job. The Veeam backup completes without issue for all our VM's except the server running Exchange. Error logs below. Can take it up with Veeam support, but wondering if anyone had any ideas? To clarify. The Exchange server backs up with when the application-aware option is disabled.

https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28995537/Veeam-Synthetic-Full-Backup.html

I have posted the question in the above link.

Now I need to give a picture of the data in the storage.


Full, Incremental,Incremental, Incremental.

Today if I need to run Synthetic Full... if I understand it will create another Incremental from The production (Not from the storage),  then I believe  it will create another copy of an existing full backup from the storage, then it will merge the recent incremental to the copy of the full backup that we have created...

is this the process? or am I misunderstanding how Synthetic Full back works ?

Thank you
